That makes sense.
John was talking of becoming resident at Bristol; Frank at Gloucestershire?

Where are you going Phil?

I only ask because we can keep an eye on Servinfo, to provide friendly fire.

open up at a different airport.

I agree with that. It also seems more likely to attract non JHB flyers
to the strips manned by JHB's ATC types. The PCI sessions are FSX
excluding and that fact alone must freeze them in time.

Have controllers now decided at which fields the intend to set up camp?

After last night's short but successful session - and even though some
of us (and I certainly include myself here) need to familiarise
ourselves with the IvAp software and brush up our rusty procedures - I
wonder what is left for our FPI/PCI sessions?  The only plus would
seem to be the ability of the controllers to plug in wherever they
want, so we can fly anywhere.  Is this feature sufficient on its own?
We all know how bad PCI can be with lag when we get a few aircraft in
fairly close proximity.  Perhaps the time has come to switch our
Wednesday sessions to IVAO?  I can't help thinking that a couple of
sessions such as Bones is suggesting, to build confidence with the
'new' software and to dust off our ATC procedures, is the way to go.
With a 'tame' controller at one end, we might consider some
arrangement to fly out to, and back from, a selection of other fields
(which could be in active ATC areas or not, according to taste).

I will certainly try my best to make Tuesday available for this - but
I would be just as happy to see our Weds sessions move over to IVAO.
